The CLM 2 from Crealev comes in two parts. There is the base which sits on any surface you want and then there is a disc that floats above the main base, this is the shelf. The disc hovers above the base at about 3.4 inches. Of course when something is situated on top of the disc, it does drop down with the added weight. However the object you put on the disc will still float around an inch to 1.9 inches. This will depend on the weight of the object.

When the disc is at the correct height and position, it then locks in. This means the system is ready and the disc will float, along with anything you put on top.
